A LITTLE BIT OF HMS PINAFORE
Gilbert & Sullivan arr. Derek Clark
Script Steven Wren Illustrator Otto von Beach
Aboard the ship HMS Pinafore, Josephine, the captain’s daughter, is in love with one of the crew.
Her father definitely doesn’t approve. Overturning social order and parental wishes alike, the
couple plan to elope. But a surprise confession soon leaves everything in doubt…
A LITTLE BIT OF EUGENE ONEGIN
Tchaikovsky arr. Derek Clark
Script Lissa Lorenzo Illustrator Essi Kimpimäki
A lovesick young girl; a cocky young man who thoughtlessly spurns her; a heart-stopping duel
between should-be friends. Tchaikovsky’s sweeping music perfectly captures the desperation and
raw emotion of Pushkin’s much-loved masterpiece.
BE A SPORT, SPIKE!
Music Karen MacIver Words Ross Stenhouse
Illustrator Iain Piercy
For kids
Meet Mike ‘The Spike’ McTavish – the greatest sportsman the world has ever seen. There’s noone
who can run faster, jump higher or swim further than mega-fit Spike. But there is one thing that
Spike can’t do – sing! Join him and his friends as he starts to exercise those vocal cords, and finds
out that a little perseverance can go a long way.
